Just so everyone can see, regional accreditation is actually better than national accreditation. Regular universities regionally accredited. For example, I go to the University of Texas, which is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). MIT and Harvard are accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE).

Do your religions, history, and communications courses also cover non-Eurocentric ideas and cultures?

Most colleges require that students take well rounded coursework in topics outside of what they are studying to ensure that they have a basic understanding of all necessary topics, not just their major. For example, despite studying Computer Science at the University of Texas, taking required culture courses has opened by eyes to the realities of worldwide immigration policies, as well as religious and ethnic practices that I was not aware, which I feel has made me a more intelligent and well rounded individual. While the Make School is far more focused on post-graduation job opportunities than other colleges, how does it handle ensuring that it produces well educated individuals with an understanding of general world affairs and cultures, which is an important goal of university education?
